Tell us about the Opportunity / What is it?

Bar Cards: postcard media for young, socially active adults, from postcard racks in 770 of the UK’s most stylish bars. Racks are located in the central bar area and carry brands relevant to the entertainment-seeking crowd. Cards are passed around amongst friends, used as conversation topics, pocketed and taken home after a night out. Bar Experiential: Bespoke media delivered in the right location at the right time, according to the brief. Experiential brings brands to life using a range of activities from sampling, product distribution, demo and promotion

What is the Marketing Objective?

Postcards are handed around, discussed and pocketed to be looked at the next day. Bar Experiential brings brands to life amongst the desired audience and environment. The nature of Bar Experiential (such as sampling and interactive media) allows the audience to make a personal brand connection, delivering a positive experiences and the opportunity to try product
